NEWS: Download Festival 2021 confirm headliners and more!

Sadly, this year’s Download Festival didn’t go ahead as planned for obvious reasons, but thankfully 2021 is definitely on the cards with the first wave of bands confirmed.

Aiming to maintain as much of the 2020 line-up as possible, both KISS and System Of A Down are still set to headline the main stage, with Biffy Clyro taking the place of Iron Maiden who seemingly are unable to make next year’s event.

Along with the three main stage headliners, a further 70+ acts have also been confirmed for the line-up, including Deftones, Funeral For A Friend, The Distillers, A Day To Remember, Creeper, Mastodon, Jamie Lenman, Gojira, Korn, and more.
